The EEOC recently slapped a Pennsylvania steel plant with a sexual harassment lawsuit. The alleged crime? It "condoned sexual harassment" by allowing some employees to post erotic pictures, posters and calendars in the office. (EEOC v. Akers National Roll Co.) A company official failed to respond to complaints because he feared male employees "would get mad." The lesson: Walk around and note any potentially offensive materials.
